Description. Have you ever wanted to be a fly on the wall to see how someone else’s job interview went? Do you wish you could get honest feedback about how you interviewed immediately afterward? This is your chance to watch as a graduate student gets that very opportunity. Sit in the audience to watch a graduate student be mock interviewed by professionals who regularly interview candidates. Following the interview, the professionals will share feedback with the group and the candidate and audience will have chance to ask questions. Don’t miss this great opportunity to see the interview from the inside!
Learning Outcomes. After attending the session, participants will:
- Consider their own methods of interviewing
- Identify additional information and preparation they need to best interview
- Outline lessons learned from the mock interview and discuss next steps
